About the bid
Town Deal funding bid submitted
Leyland has been invited by Government to bid for Town Deal funding - a potential of up to £25 million of funding.
Town Deals aim to boost businesses, regenerate town centres and improve infrastructure.
A Leyland Town Deal Board has been established to develop the bid with members from private sector businesses, education, public, community and voluntary sectors. This includes representatives from South Ribble Borough Council, Runshaw College, C and W Berry, Lancashire County Council, Job Centre Plus and Lancashire Enterprise Partnership. The Board is chaired by Charles Hadcock DL of Roach Bridge Mill.
Following community consultation and engagement the Leyland Town Investment Plan bid was developed and submitted focusing on three main projects - Town Centre improvements, Leyland Market and a business and skills hub BASE2. The Town Investment Plan document can be found below.
